Office of Student Affairs
Student Affairs Team: Dr. Aubrey Knight, Angelica Stovall, Emily Holt Foerst, and Elvir Berbic.

The Office of Student Affairs at the Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine is here to support you throughout your undergraduate medical education.

Our support encompasses most of the day-to-day events and activities of student life. We take great pride in fostering a caring and open environment in which you feel comfortable in allowing us to assist you in your journey through medical school. We offer responsive and accessible resources for your personal health and wellness, professional growth and development, academic achievement and excellence, and career development and preparation.

Each year, the Office of Student Affairs participates in orientation for new students as well as the White Coat Ceremony, the Student Clinician’s Ceremony, the Donor Memorial, the Match Day celebration, and graduation. We also serve as a liaison to the Student Council, along with student clubs, organizations, and interest groups.

Other responsibilities of the Office of Student Affairs include:

We strive to be your advocate from the moment you receive your acceptance to medical school through your preparations for residency. Please visit us in person, by telephone, or via email for answers to your questions or for other assistance.
